Glad to see Hacksaw Ridge (the subject of whom was a member of my church) and Hell or High Water in the Best Picture list, and also Toni Erdmann and A Man Called Ove in the Foreign Film list. Given that until now, about Sweden's only globally known cinematic export was Ingmar Bergman, it was a bit of a culture shock to see that the Swedes do in fact have a sense of humor!

Fire at Sea is the only one of the documentaries I've seen, which I had problems with (but essentially political ones, and so OT for this forum), but which nevertheless has a lot to recommend it.

Very disappointed that Aquarius didn't make a nomination, though.

I'm surprised "Arrival" got as much love as it did, considering it wasn't a huge hit and sci-fi doesn't usually get much attention in the major categories.

I just hope there are enough ethnic groups represented to satisfy everybody this year. What with the quality of the work being a secondary consideration these days.

The AMPAS was already walking on very thin ice. For the past two years in a row all of the nominees in all the acting categories have been white. Looking over the 2016 slate of movie releases, black actors have had significant roles and delivered great performances in some of the most critically acclaimed movies of the past year. If the AMPAS had delivered another all-white slate of acting nominees, for a third year in a row, it would have invited a gigantic W.T.F. from far more than just the black community.

Moonlight has the highest score on Rotten Tomatoes out of all this year's Best Picture nominees (98%), and from what I can tell via IMDB it has won the most critics association awards for Best Picture. Fences had a 95% score. Hidden Figures had a 92% score. La La Land with 14 nominations (93% RT score) is easily the favorite to win Best Picture, although Manchester by the Sea (96% RT score) could upset.

Out of this year's 20 acting nominees, 6 are black and 1 (Dev Patel) is of Indian descent. 3 of the black nominees are in the Best Supporting Actress category.

Over the previous couple or so Oscar awards it is interesting that Mexican directors have won the Best Director Oscar the past 3 years in a row. Alejandro G. Iñárritu won for The Revenant last year and Birdman the previous year (beating Black director Steve McQueen for 12 Years A Slave). Alfonso Cuarón won for Gravity before that.

I thought it was a good movie. My girlfriend hated the ending of it though. I think Arrival scored the nomination and a lot of praise from critics for its serious themes, like humanity's tendency to impulsively rush to judgment and even take violent action before really thinking a situation through. That upped the tension level in this movie pretty effectively.

I saw LA LA LAND two weeks ago and I thought it was just an ordinary movie that I thought it was only good but not as great as everyone seem to claim it is. It has been compared to musicals of the past but I disagree. I Thought movies like SINGING IN THE RAIN, MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS, GIGI, SOUND OF MUSIC, MY FAIR LADY, and even CABARET were all great but LA LA LAND does not compare the the other film's greatness.
